End of may update: the Huawei breaking news

After the Hossa release, May was a very quiet month: some little update on Pro1, a minor update for SDK, and then BOOM!

The breaking news: following the Trump’s will, Google will stop support for Huawei devices!

Twitter barely exploded, even looking at the #Sailfish hashtag. Many Jolla users tweeted about Sailfish OS as possible Huawei’s new OS, in a Jolla Huawei cooperation scenario.

Some tweet

The first ideas…

Then the hype grow…

Our speculation & conversation with Zoltan (the creator of Gooble Invasion, ndr)

(We had a marriage, so your tweet is unexpectedly late 😐   )

In the end, finally some criticism against Trump, because a political ban is never a good news.

The Google-Huawei topic will continue in next weeks, and we will see if it will be a shutdown, or just a stop for new collaboration. For sure there are some legal issue that will make slower apply the ban, and there will be some form of agreement between the parties… stay tuned, the topic will be covered again, also on Medium.

 

The other news:

Jolla is looking users for a UX test: apply if you’re in Helsinki and never used the Sailfish UI.

 


Minor update for SDK
, now it’s possible develop for Hossa release:

 

Xperia XA2 Plus end of may price: 269€ 

We’re focusing on less models, for sure on the XA2 Plus 32GB dual sim, which is the “Top” selling everywhere.
Thanks to some local price dropping, we can chip away another 10€.

See you soon.
